Wine Club Memberships Make Great Gifts

The wine clubs gained members over the year. We expect them to continue next year, so long as we maintain at least ten members for each club. These clubs provide a means for the wine curious to learn about new regions, new varieties and lesser-known producers. 
We offer two different clubs– Vineyard, a reds-only option and Terroir, which might include anything from all white or all red to combinations with sparklings and rosés.

Terroir

Exploring varieties, promoting diversity

Terroir is about mud and stones, but it is also about the varietal nature of plants or animals that grow in or on this land, the microclimate of a hillside or plain, and the personality of those who do the tending. It represents the six sides of a honeycomb: geology, variety, geography, climate, social culture […]
